The newest of The Bushcamp Company’s six bushcamps, Zungulila is a classic tented safari camp situated in a remote area of Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park.
The camp is composed of four spacious thatch-roofed tents. There are two tents with two queen-sized beds and two tents with a king-sized bed available. Each Meru-style tent comes with an en suite bathroom with a sink, a flush toilet, and a romantic outdoor shower. For added privacy and relaxation, the tent’s also include a private deck with a sunken plunge pool making it the prefect spot to stay cool while watching the wildlife including elephants drinking at the spring or waterfowl gliding over the river.
The camp is located in South Luangwa National Park, a world-famous wildlife haven, centered around the Luangwa River. Its historic virility stems from its topography. The Muchinga Escarpment forms the park’s western and northwestern boundaries, sloping steeply down to the river from the west side. The river valley, continued to the west by the Lunsemfwa River valley, forms a natural barrier, and to this day there are no man-made roads spanning the valley. The Park enjoys a dense animal population including Impalas, pukus, waterbucks, giraffes, and buffaloes grazing on the plains. A high number of leopards stalk the dense woodlands, while herds of elephant wade through the marshes and hippos play in the Luangwa River. There are about 400 bird species recorded in the Park.
